Our trip to Plymouth a few weeks ago first began with picking up a car at Avis and then a stop at Gillette Stadium, where the New England Patriots play football.
It is in Foxborough, Massachusetts and is about 20 miles southwest of Boston. The New England Revolution soccer team also plays there.
When we left Boston, we didn’t know we would be seeing the stadium. We wanted to stop by the Wrentham Village Premium Outlets while out that way, and our directions there took us straight by the stadium. We thought, we may never be out this way again, so why not stop by?!
While researching for this post, we learned that the New England Patriots changed its name from the original Boston Patriots after relocating to Foxborough in 1971.
The stadium was opened in 2002 and seats 68,756.
The next time we see a Patriots home game, I’ll sure we’ll pay a bit more attention.
